We are all wrestlers!
My name is Alexander Bica and I am the Founder and CEO of EliteSpons. Beside running this company I am a professional wrestler in the Swedish national team. Me and thousands other athletes are struggling everyday to reach our goals and become world champions, without having an income from the sport. We workout ten times a week, go on training camps and competitions which makes it difficult to manage the economy. We can't have a full time job if we want to become world champions, because the sport is our full time job.
This is our everyday problem and that's where I got this idea from, we are in need of financial support so that we can focus a hundred percent on our mission and goals.
So that is what I did, I planned meetings with companies I was interested in being sponsored by and went out with the hope of being sponsored by restaurants, nutrition and clothing companies etc. Today I have six different sponsors with me on my journey towards the olympics and it is an incredible help for me.
Now my mission is to help all athletes in the same position, to be able to focus 100 % and reach your goals.
With our matchmaking tool we are able to match your brand with the right athletes for your target group. The athletes create their profile with content of which sport, results/accomplishments, future goals, their needs of different kind of sponsors and location. From there you can see all the information you need to find the right athlete influencer and contact them directly by email or phone and start your collaboration with a click.
Our vision is to gather elite athletes and sponsors all in one place for collaborations which make a difference. To be able to help elite athletes to make their journey and everyday living as easy and worth as possible. When training twice a day and spending days and hours being on training camps and tournaments, it is hard to combine it with a full-time job. That's why sponsorships can be a changing factor. Our mission is also to help brands grow their audience and customers by the influence of the right athlete for the right target group. This is based on social media which is the fastest place for growing your brand, but could also be live marketing like printing logotype on clothes.
